Answers Time

  • I will read out the answers I have.

  • When you think you think you hear your answer, stand up and read me your question.

  • If you are right, come pick up the card.

  • I am timing the class. When all answers have been handed out, I will stop the timer. You are competing against the other classes.


Select one person from the class to write on the board today.

You have one minute to make your selection before I pick for you.


Time’s up!


What problems in our school would you like to see changed?

Writer, please take six suggestions from the class.

I need two volunteers to pass out worksheets.


After you have chosen two problems, we need to come up with action steps to solve these problems.

An action step is a good starting point when you are looking for a solution.

Use the suggestions on the next page for ideas. You may make up your own. Write one action step for each problem.

After you write an action step for each problem, explain how that action step could help solve the issue.

三 Solutions!

On the worksheet, write down the two problems with school that you care MOST about.

If you hate them all, make up your own.

If you want to solve a problem,

you have to work together.

The next step is take action on your problem.

No matter what you want to change at school,

writing one letter might not get things done.

You have to use the power of numbers.

In your groups, you are going to compose a short persuasive paragraph explaining why the principal or a teacher needs to help you make whatever change you want.

Get our a CLEAN, BLANK sheet of paper.
